About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

ABAC - Twinchies

For a SWAP next month we were tasked to make TWINCHIES.

Oh something I had never done before so I set to....

I used some backing card I had previously made using the shaving foam technique with Dylusions. As it looked like water I just had to go with the water theme.

The fish die is from the Quickutz Refresh set. The branch from Tim Holtz's Autumnal strip die for the coral. I added some sticky ribbon and liquid pearls for the eye. 

So here are my little fishes, just right for the April Showers Challenge over at Anything But a Card.

OK so once I had googled Twinchies I knew what you were up to ;) What fab little squares, going to add them to my "to have a go at" list - maybe we could do a swap with them sometime on UKPC?
